Sounds like just what I need right now, thanks for the offer. I haven't planned where to cross the border yet but I assume it will be from TX since I'll be coming from the east.

Originally my plan was to head to Panama and back but I think the last thing I need right now is an itinerary since this is a trip to clear out my head...maybe I'll just bum around Mexico and Guatamala for 4-6 weeks and see what happens.

See, that's another problem with Mexicans. They have too much time off from work.

Have fun guys. I really, really wish that I could join you. I'll just have to be content with riding across the border after work tonight for my regular cigar run.

The Yucatan may be calling you Amigo. That's where I'd be heading right now if I had the time.

Drop me a PM and I'll be happy to show you around.

You guys ever seen that prison off the side of Hwy 1 way down south in Baja? It looks like a freakin' dungeon.

From the inside or the outside?

I think that there is a modern prison off to the north of the road between Reynosa and Matamoros, somewhere near the Pharr border crossing. I see it in the near distance every so often.

Last time I was in Nuevo Laredo, I saw a young couple sitting in the park near International Bridge 1. It was dark, and he had his arm around her. Every few minutes, the teenage girl would groan, lean over, and puke on the side walk. All while her boyfriend was comforting her.

Mexico's dangerous. The Margaritas will kill you.

I had my camera with me, but I couldn't muster the brass ones. I feel like I let AdvRider down.

Ok, the obvious question: What were you doing in that park, way after dark?

I had gone to the Farmacia to buy some medicines for my Mom. I park my car on the U.S. side, walk across, find a restaurant and eat (machitos, frijoles borrachos, aguacate, and homemade tortillas de maíz, with a Dos Equis or two). After eating I walk to one of the Farmacia Benavides that are scattered around the Mercado area and buy Mom her medicines.

This occurred on the walk back to the bridge.

I almost stopped at a bar across the park to continue watching the show. I obviously entertain quite easily.

You could've answered w/o mentioning the food thing... ...

Could she have been experiencing some kinda extreme orgasms, or is that reaching a tad far?
